cp_jef is on a distinguished road

I am currently working on an internal flow, conjugate heat transfer problem utilizing a UDF to vary the inlet velocity until a certain per-determined target is achieved. I am interested in knowing if there is a way to suspend the solution of the energy equation until the UDF has determined the required inlet velocity and (maybe) the continuity and momentum equations have converged or are close to convergence. I know this can be done manually by stopping the solver and enabling the energy equation, but I want the process to be automated as I have to solve a DOE with a large number of design points.
